2 weeks in Hurghada at least 5 days diving What dive shops small groups? and what else 2 do?

by itchie75

We will be in Hurghada for two weeks. My wife doesn't dive but will snorkel. I will be diving at least 5 days 10 dives. What dive shops? How big of groups do some take? I hate being with 20-30 people and prefer a good small group 3-10 people max.

Any other suggestions of what we should do and see while we are there? Also going home we have a 10 hour layover in Cairo from 2 AM until Noon. Is there time to go see the Pyramids of Giza? And at 2 AM is there a safe way to travel there and what time do they open? Costs? Return time? Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Anything other recommendations of sights to see and how to get there or should we just try to sleep? (boring)

Thanks

Richa & Deb - Happy Thanksgiving!

Hi,
the price for a flight (roundtrip)from Hurghada to Cairo would be € 137 for each of you. The flight will last one hour. So you could go back on the same day. If you want to stay in Cairo for one night, we could look for an accomodation for you.
The Pyramid area opens at 8.00 AM, the admission price is EGP 50,00, if you want to go into the Cheopspyramide it will cost EGP 100,00.
If you want to have a guided tour, kindly visit our homepage: www.cairo.jimdo.com
We would pick you up at the airport and bring you back again. You can choose the places of interest you want to see.
Wish you a beautiful stay in Egypt and hope to hear from you!

We are now going from Cairo straight to Hurghada. Plan to stay 8-9 days diving and one day to Valley of the Kings. Need info on a guide and ride to Valley of Kings. We have a place in -near Hurghada already. Just need ride and tour guide for Vally of Kings.

We will then fly back to Cairo and have 3 days at hotel in downtown area 5 miles from airport 12 miles from great pyramids, sphinx. Would like to have ride from airport to hotel and ride and guide to Pyramids, museums etc. Again prefer just the 2 of us in private vehicle not a bus tour. And then a ride back to airport from hotel. Hotel is already booked. Please advise guide and rides and recommendation of othe sites and prices.

Thanks RIch & Deb

Travel Tips for Hurghada

friends

by Aurorae

Egyptian people are very friendly, and our group of friends who stayed at Sun&SEa befriended the waitor of the hotel, we taught him some Serbian, made jokes...
Some people can be annoying, but some are really nice, and it's really great to chit chat and laugh!
We had fun on the beach, so here is a shot! Ljiljana, Nabil (the waiter), Ivana and Dusan are in the front row, Dragan and I are behind.

sea sports

by Aurorae

All the water sports are available here, from snorkeling to windsurf, scuba diving, water ski, parachute ski, water scooters, sailing, yachting...
But if you come to Hurghada and don't try snorkeling or scuba diving, you missed a lot!

Egyptian "taverns"

by Aurorae about Egyptian "taverns"

There are MANY along the main street, any you pick is fun! There are a lot of traditional Egyptian taverns, where you can smoke shisha and have their food and specialties, watch TV, play borad games... It's like a place for spending some leisure time for family and friends for Egyptians. Odd enough, i've seen very few foreigners in such taverns, they tend not to mix with the locals (or vice versa). Pity, because I liked Egyptian authentic bars the best!

Seafood, nothing special

by ChocoJones about Fish House

It was our first time down in Sakkala, so hingry for seafood my hisband and I bumped into Fish House in Sakkala. This restaurant has both indoor and outdoor seating and and fish market. The service was ok. So was the food, good, but nothing special. Great people watching, though!

We shared an order of grilled sea bass and seafood kebab. Both come with fries and a salad, I believe. The fries were surprisingly good: crispy and hot. The kebab was good, we especially liked the shrimp part. But the sea bass was terribly overcooked, so it turned very dry - what a shame for a seafood restaurant!

But in general, it was fine, though I do not think I would go back to this place again.

Giftun Island

by lotharlerch

This is a sandy island in the Red Sea about up to one hour by small boats from Hurghada. It is not much to see there except a nice sandy beach. All what might be of interest on the island is off limits because it is a protected area.

There are nice coral reefs close to the island which are great for snorkelling.
